I started out as a trainee Biomedical Scientist in the NHS as a placement student whilst undertaking my degree at Aston. I joined Aston’s School of Life and Health Sciences in September 2016 following graduation where I held a position as a technical assistant until I accepted my current role as one of the biosciences graduate teaching assistants in January 2017. I am part-time teaching, part-time PhD, specialising in biochemistry.
